Along the mighty banks of the Columbia
As part of the CCC in the 1930s, Grand Coulee Dam was constructed in central Washington State to help bring electricty and irrigation water to the region. This film, which appears to be made in the 1940s or early 1950s, gives a brief overview of the dam. It is possible that the film was used as a filmed introduction at the dam itself. Having visited the dam, I can say that not much has changed in the area, though the land surrounding Grand Coulee and the other dams along the Columbia have made the area part of the richest farmland in the nation and heart of the Washington apple harvest.

Agriculture - New Farms from Grand Coulee
This short film announces the opening of the Grand Coulee Dam and explains the benefits of the dam, both in terms of irrigation and electricity generation. That's it, really, though there's some historical value here.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.

Water water.. rushing...
This very brief but highy interesting film about the opening of the Grand Coulee Dam explains to us the signifigance of the dam, who benefits from it, why it was built and so on. It gets to the point so it's not too difficult to sit through.
